Swee Hong Lim and Lester Ruth have filled an important gap in the study of worship. Lovin' on Jesus: A Concise History of Contemporary Worship is the first scholarly work of its kind on this topic. Lim and Ruth trace the origins and development of what we commonly call contemporary Christian worship, exploring it thoroughly and methodically. Their research includes early recordings and interviews with many who were directly involved in the early stages.

The authors were students of James White, and their book is, in a sense, a much-needed addition to White's classic Introduction to Christian Worship. The thematic structure of Lovin' on Jesus mirrors that of White's Introduction, making this book exceedingly useful for students and practitioners in the study of Christian worship as a whole.

This is an essential resource for all students, scholars, worship leaders, and pastors who are serious about understanding the worship they lead.

"Meticulously researched, accessibly written, generous in its praise, and balanced in its critiques-this is the book for which many of us have long been waiting." -Melanie C. Ross, Assistant Professor of Liturgical Studies, Yale Divinity School, New Haven, CT

"Particularly useful for teaching is the way Lim and Ruth organize their account by practices of time, space, music, prayer, technology, and scripture. This will immediately become a required textbook for the courses I teach on Christian worship." -Ed Phillips, Associate Professor of Worship and Liturgical Theology and Coordinator of the Initiative in Religious Practices and Practical Theology, Candler School of Theology, Atlanta, GA

"Readers will find Lim and Ruth's one-of-a-kind history convincing and rigorous. The authors show how a modern genre of Christian worship claimed its place, what it all means, and where it is heading." -Gerald Liu, Assistant Professor of Worship and Preaching, Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, NJ

"Lovin' on Jesus is an important book for every pastor, worship leader, and worshipper. This wonderfully prepared study will help you keep your worship experience biblically centered, dynamic, and growing." -Rick Muchow, Founding Worship Pastor, Saddleback Church, worship leader and coach
